The Apocalypse Dream
Where are you from?: United States
Was this your first lucid Dream?: No
How many lucid dreams have you had?: Millions – as long as I can remember
I don’t remember exactly how it started, but I was living in a city that was near the sea. The sky and sea were all sort of tinged a sickly dull blackened color. What had been happening was that something was poisoning the water and a lot of people had been dying from it. There were several monster type things – there were worms with big teeth in all the pipes and sewers, sort of like lampreys, in different sizes depending on where they lived, and then there were strange humped creatures with black slippery backs that had cavities shaped vaguely like freaky skeleton faces.
I was with a group of people running around, trying to stay alive and find a way to end everything – I remember at one point there was a worm that burst out of a manhole cover and my friend and I only just got out of the way. Later on I told my friends, I guess I was sort of a leader perhaps, to wait for me because I had finally found the source of the problem at the shore. So I went to this big building that was flooded by poisoned seawater, with several death’s heads floating in it (the humped things)and there was this huge, octopus monster (who gave off the impression of being female).
I stood on a ledge in a doorway above the water, and started to gather up this power I had inside me (I’ve always had a hard time ‘feeling’ the magic or healing or whatever that I’ve been trying to do in dreams but this one worked well) to try to defeat her/it, but then one of my friends shows up – he had followed me. So I used all of my energy to send a burst to protect him, and I remember the monster first mocking me for not having enough power, then acting triumphant after I used it all. But I had just enough to live, and I let it hit me once and fell into the poisoned water, going limp and pretending to be dead (I can breathe underwater in dreams). I knew I wouldn’t die because the kind of burst I had sent out was a purifying burst or something, and I remember thinking I had to wait three days to make sure they really thought I was dead and then they would die.
After lying in the silt for a while, I swam in the golden sunlit water between buildings, seeing pipes and such as I swam, back to where my friends were waiting, in the beautiful, renewed world. They were all mad at me for letting them think I was dead, but very glad I was back. After that, I felt the morning sunlight coming and let myself wake up. It was a really cool dream, and I might make a short story out of it. I hope you enjoy reading!
